  • Electromagnetism for Geophysical Applications

    Electromagnetism for Geophysical ApplicationsFollowing a DISC 2017 course given by Doug Oldenburg and Lindsey Heagy on EM, I learned about the existence of a library of user-friendly EM Apps, which allowed me to make a series of exercises related to geophysical applications. As a result we now can also offer a two-day (16 hrs) Face-to-Face and a two-month duration (16 hrs equivalent) E-learning course called “A Gentle Introduction to EM for Geophysical Applications”. These courses are made up of power point presentations with references to publications together with computer-based exercises and EM related videos.
